The last Eleven on here is 4/24/70 mammoth gardens. I've read the last one was 4/26/70 although no recording exists. Not completely sure about that. This might be the slowest 11 the GD ever played. I like it. I like all of them!
Subject: The last Eleven?
Far as I've found in my searches this was the last time they played The Eleven.
Phil said they quit playing it because it was "too hard".
If I'm mistaken about it being the last time please correct me.
Subject: Osvaldo L for "Grateful Dead Live at Oregon State University on 1970-01-17"
A study from Oregon State University concluded that the flu virus survives best when the absolute humidity is low, like it usually is in winter. Some people don't know about these most common diseases. Absolute humidity is the ratio of actual water in the air. Your payday loans source cautions everyone to wash their hands regularly, because that's the best way to guard against infection. The better we all practice hygiene, the less likely we'll have to get payday loans to pay for a prescription.
Subject: a GREAT Lovelight
This is a really good early '70 show. The Dire Wolf sounds like it was put together in a studio, rather than a live performance---which means it's REALLY good. One complaint is the Hard To Handle's in '70---they were pretty short compared to what was done in '71 with Bob adding his little solo before Jerry cut loose. But, I'll not say this version is detracted in anyway by it's brevity. The Dark Star is another fine version---what more is there to say about almost ANY Dark Star? St Stephen>The Eleven---this is pretty powerful stuff here. And, we come to Lovelight. Unfortunately it fades out @ the end of, so you're not hearing it all. Again, though, this is pretty powerful as well. Listen to the way the music sort of explodes after the 1st set of lyrics---spectacular!!!
All I gotta say is that nobnody in Corvallis, now....besides a select few....realize the significance of this show. Good recording but mediocre sound quality. The people at this venue are mostly jack asses....but like me there are a few that still remember and remain.
Subject: The good stuff
Good Loving is short, but cooks from start to finish - the boys also tear through Mason's and then sing their hearts out on High Time.
Subject: Another slice please
There are some sound issues, but I'm sure not going to quibble about it. Besides, how can you resist a Dark Star from this amazing period of developement? Overall decent show, and I STILL don't see how Mason's Children missed the cut for Workingmans. Strong version here. 4 stars with anchovies.
Subject: how to make a delicious pizza
First: to love the Dead is to know the EQ. These tapes are 35 years old--older than most of you hear(!). How fortunate, dear Deadheads. Be grateful.
Second: discern your toppings. With rare exception for shows after spring '69 (circa LiveDead/ AoxoMoxoA) I pick the tastiest bits. This way I appreciate more on the high volume easy listening end, save my HD space & complain less--all good. In this case I suggest starting with Good Lovin'. It's Pigpen's tune & all cyllinders are firing Motown's old oven. From there the momentum makes it all more than listenable. The Mason's Children marinates a very rich sauce. You smell it. MmmGood! Simmering down to a fine High Time (indeed, though there is a well-executed splice) you're then ready to top it all off with the mushroom medley of classic LiveDead cooked down to essence on a great Lovelight crust & served very hot. Very good indeed. You'll return to this pivotal show (don't miss FE 01.02.70) in a pivotal year. A 3+ stars. Enjoy!

Subject: Funky organ on china cat
Not sure if they were using the usual Hammond organ or something different but this has a '67 or so feel to it.... What a great show and overlooked (apparently no one felt compelled to comment on this).... This is fun and a great surprise. Sound quality can be a little distorted in places but is very listenable....
